The Island of Sangha

with Angela Dews and nakawe cuebas

Sunday April 21st, 2019 | 10:00am – 5:00pm

Join us on this day-long retreat to explore how spiritual friendship, sangha, can deepen our practice.

As our beloved Buddhist teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh states “coming home to the island of sangha.” We mostly think of awakening as an individual affair. The teachings can make it sound like that. However, when we take refuge, we take refuge in the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha.

Join us as we take refuge together, practice together, understand together, and awaken together. Meditation practitioners of all levels of experience are welcome to this Daylong retreat.


Due to unforeseen circumstances this program has been postponed and will be re-scheduled at a future date.
